There were a few of these sort of comments which landed at this blog over the past few days;
I believe the commentators were referring to this piece of news;

Since then, that guy FD Iskandar, the then chairman who tried to steer the media group to safer water and was mercilessly whacked for his effort had left.

New Straits Times (54,490) + Berita Harian (91,229) + Harian Metro (142,262) = NSTP (287,981)

Or maybe their newspapers don’t have too much politics, back stabbing and such.
